Aries (March 21 – April 19): The past two months have sent you back in time, and you may have had to clear clutter from the past, metaphorically or literally. With new self-awareness and perhaps even a clearer future vision, you’re now ready to take strides forward in life. You have access to reserves of energy, and while you don’t want to push yourself to exhaustion, this month, you can make up for lost time.
Focus is a keyword for you this month. Think about your top goals and priorities, and embrace a disciplined approach to meeting them one step at a time. Because life is moving faster than it has in quite a while, you may want to do it all. However, be careful not to disperse your energy into too many different directions. Organize your time wisely.
Professionally, if any door appears closed, stop knocking and try another one instead. After September 6, Saturn, the planet of discipline, moves forward again in your career sector. You become more in touch with your true north and deepen a sense of purpose in the work you do. You could receive a calling of sorts or become inspired to commit to a new course. This is a peak period for you, and if you feel as if you have reached the highest level you can in your current work, you may be ready for a change. If this applies to you, but you aren’t quite prepared to take the leap, find ways to stretch yourself by learning new skills that would support a future job.
Your ruling planet, Mars, ended its retrograde cycle on August 27. Now that it’s moving forward again, you could be motivated to move, too. Find a workout partner or try new classes. The new moon on September 9 is favorable for any diet or detox plan you intend to start.
The sun shines in your relationship sector after September 22, illuminating awareness about this area of your life. A few days later, the influence of the full moon on September 24 could help clarify issues you may have had in previous or current partnerships. Understand what triggers your insecurities or what you might be projecting onto others, and you could have an entirely new experience in love. If you are single and hoping to manifest love, relax and allow it to unfold. Trust in divine timing. Patience can be one of your life challenges. If you are involved in a relationship, you could feel more connected with your partner at the end of the month.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): On September 22, the sun passes over the ecliptic and heads south of the celestial equator, and we celebrate the Autumnal Equinox. This is one of two points in the year (the Vernal Equinox happens in March) when we have a balance between light and dark. Being an Earth sign, take a signal from the earth and set the intention to feel centered and at ease this month, no matter what transitions life brings.
Speaking of which, September can be a month of transition, as many are settling into a new routine. You may have sent children back to school. Maybe you have noticed the traffic patterns changing as one season ends and another begins. Astrologically, the Equinox marks the Sun’s ingress into Cardinal sign Libra. Cardinal signs are all about action and taking an initiative to make something happen in life. You will feel this energy all month long, but especially after the 22nd. Make the most of this influence and take baby steps forward toward achieving personal goals. If you have wanted to lose a few pounds, for example, rather than committing to 5am boot camp, start by adding 20 extra minutes of activity every day. Or if you want to embark on a creative project, start by dedicating a reasonable number of hours per week. Small strides make a big difference over time.
Professionally, you could become inspired to start something new this month, especially around September 10. Since you could have extra motivation for advancing your career, connect with mentors or people who can offer direction early in the month. Seek advice if you feel lost. You may even consider working with a business coach or consultant to help you find new ways to market yourself. If you have been looking for a new job, think outside the box. There could be new ways of approaching the inquiry.
The new moon on September 9 highlights your sector of creativity and children, suggesting fertility and new life. This would be an excellent time to treat the little ones in your life to a surprise outing. Get in touch with your own inner child to make the most of this time and play.
Your love life could be in transition right now. After September 9, Venus in your opposite sign, Scorpio, asks you to approach the matter with curiosity rather than insist on definite answers. If you have been uncertain about aspects of your current relationship, try to relax and enjoy the moment. Be open to romance and appreciate the aspects of the relationship you enjoy. If you are single, the new moon on September 9 suggests you could embrace a new beginning. Your passion is extra activated this month, which is favorable for a budding romance.
Gemini (May 20 – June 21): In the Wizard of Oz, when the character Dorothy clicks her heels three times and says, “There’s no place like home,” she discovers she’s had the power to access her heart’s desire all along. However, she had to find this out for herself by journeying along the yellow brick road. Think about your life. What twisted paths have you walked on your way to self-discovery? What heart’s desire do you seek to manifest right now? You, like Dorothy, have the power. This month, access it by defining your sense of home. Rather than looking outside for guidance or answers, plant roots, connect to your past, and lean on supportive people in your life. If you need inspiration, watch the classic film.
You could decide to make changes to your home this month, and if you have been thinking about starting a renovation or remodeling project, the energy of the new moon on September 9 could support you to finalize details and hire the right help. Start the month with a deep cleaning to tackle cluttered closets, drawers, or storage areas.
On September 22, the Sun enters compatible Libra and kicks off a new season. For you, this marks a time of fertility. If you have been thinking about starting a garden, you might consider meeting with a landscape architect or other professional for advice and help. Libra season features Venus, the planet of grace and harmony, and it’s a favorable time for beautifying your life. Fertility can apply to creative endeavors, too. If you have been creatively stuck or blocked, the full moon on September 24 could open your mind to new ideas.
Your ruling planet Mercury is moving forward again after a retrograde cycle last month, and you can now make up for any lack of motivation you might have had. If you own your own business or work in a creative field, you might think of ways to expand international sales or operations. No matter what kind of work you do, this is an excellent month to organize yourself. In doing so, you will lay the groundwork for positive shifts in your career.
Reread the first paragraph of your horoscope and think about your love life. If you have felt restless or unsure about your relationship, truly be present with your partner and find new aspects of them to appreciate. If you find yourself wanting to run, center yourself by focusing on the positive. If your relationship is stable and healthy, you could fall in love all over again after September 22. If you are single, come home to yourself this month, and from that centered, grounded space, you can attract love into your life.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Your horoscope starts out with an activity you can try. Sometime before September 7, see if you can meet three new people in your neighborhood. Take a walk through town or visit a nearby cafe, and strike up a conversation with a stranger. If you feel disconnected from your community or if you have recently moved to a new place, you can start to plant roots and feel more grounded. The more you experience a sense of connection and belonging, the more you, as a Cancer, can bloom.
You could spend more time with siblings or close friends who feel like brothers and sisters this month. Conversations could be brainstorming sessions for how you might host a reunion or family vacation. Work out the details, and follow through. The new moon on September 9 signals a new beginning for some of these relationships. You can overcome any challenges and improve communication with an open heart. If the past has been rocky in these relationships, try to look through the eyes of compassion, and, in doing so, you can see a bigger picture.
Several planets were retrograde last month, and you may have felt more nostalgic. If you spent some looking through old photos or reconnected with people from your past, you likely cleared energetic space in your life for new beginnings. This month, establish a vision for your future, personally and professionally. You may need to hone a skill to advance your career to the next level. Your mind is ready to learn new information. You might consider taking a class or working toward certification of some kind.
Professionally, you could move forward this month to solidify any partnerships. Work through all contracts at the beginning of the month, especially around September 7. Communication is a theme for you up to September 22. You may need to think outside the box for new ways to market yourself as well, especially if you own your own business or if you are thinking of hosting workshops or teaching a class.
In your love life, you could have a stronger sense of security than you have in the previous two months. If you are in a relationship, you might feel more connected, surer of your commitment to your partner. If you are single, you could enjoy new romantic encounters this month with Venus, the relationship planet, in passionate Scorpio. Keep an open heart and mind, and allow yourself to be surprised. If you have felt jaded or disappointed in the past, offer yourself the opportunity for a renewed sense of faith.
Leo (July 23 – August 22): With the Sun as your sign’s ruling heavenly body, you were born to shine brightly. For some of you, this means accepting leadership positions, while others of you may stand on stage as a performer or public speaker. Shining means using your gifts to the fullest and expressing your potential. Fear is one limiting force that can dim your light or block your creative impulses. When you feel stuck in any area of your life, you may need to face a fear head on and access the courage to move through it.
Financial matters could be top of mind, especially around the time of the new moon on September 9. If you have had frustrations with this area of life, keep in mind your self-criticism could actually stifle creative solutions. Be gentle with yourself and stay open to possibilities. New moons symbolize fresh starts, and this could be yours. If you have recently had financial successes, great! Maintain your confidence to keep up the momentum.
After September 6, it’s time to get to work. With extra motivation, though, it won’t feel like a chore. If you have felt a lack of drive over the past two months or if you experienced delays or setbacks with professional projects, you’ll be glad to know that period is drawing to a close. If you have taken a break, you can now make up for any lost time. To gain momentum, commit to new personal development practices this month, like meditation or positive affirmations. After September 21, you could hear of a class or workshop offering to support your growth. These kinds of activities will help you manifest from a more positive frame of mind.
To have a more harmonious home life, think about balance this month. If you are redecorating your space, this message applies to your color and object choices. Otherwise, it refers to your relationships with others living in your home. This is a transitional (and often busy) time of year for many, especially those with school-age children. You may not be able to meet all of your loved ones’ needs. Do your best, and make time for yourself, especially around September 12.
You could have a renewed interest in romance if you have been single for some time, especially after September 10. You may have had some revelations about your love life over the past two months, and you could have even reached a critical turning point between July 27 and August 11. In light of new discoveries, you may feel ready to take action, either to manifest a new relationship or to make changes in your current one. With Mars entering your opposite sign, you could have the courage to act, but resist acting on impulse. Let your intuition guide you, and stay honest, communicative, and open to seeing a broader perspective.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22): Welcome to Virgo season. It’s your time, and hopefully, you are in celebration mode as you prepare for a new year of life. When the sun returns to the degree it was at the time of your birth, it ushers in a new cycle, called the Solar Return. As you close one solar return year and begin a new one, you might reflect on the past 12 months. What were some of the highlights? Accomplishments? Focus on the positive and celebrate successes. This is a month for movement, and the more you focus on the positive, the more you will experience positive manifestations in your life.
